Thank You, Friend

I’m still cranking out thank you cards! I received lots of yummy food from friends while recuperating so when I return the dishes and baskets I like to include a little note.  I love the Host Stamp Set in the annual catalog, Love You Lots.  The animals featured in this set make adorable note cards.

How simple and cute is this 3 x 3 note card?! I started with a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock measuring 3 x 6 and scored it at 3″. The real red layer is a 2 3/4 square and the stamped whisper white layer is a 2 1/2 square.  I stamped the ladybugs and sentiment with Basic Black ink and then colored the ladybugs with my real red marker. Next, I made an envelope using a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Sending Love 6 x 6 Paper Stack and the Envelope Punch Board. It is so simple to make your own envelopes following the simple directions right on the envelope punch board.  This is definitely one of my favorite tools as I use it for more than just envelopes.  You can make all kinds of candy treat holders, etc.  You get a lot of bang for your buck with this one… it is only $20 (item # 133774) and even has a built in corner rounder.

Here’s a short video showcasing the Envelope Punch Board.

I dressed up my envelope with some organza ribbon and real red bakers twine (left over from the holiday catalog). I stamped and colored some more ladybugs then cut them out with the Layering Circles Framelits .  I added a scalloped circle cut in basic black and adhered this to the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  This way the ribbon piece just slides off to open the envelope.

  3. This is so freaking cute! Just as cute as a bug in a rug – do I have that right – that doesn’t make sense even if it is a lady bug in the rug. Oh wait, it is a snug and not cute. Oh whatever, I am doing two things at once here and Ted is antsy to go for a walk again. Anyway, this is just too cute of a project. I will watch the video on the envelope maker later since I have the envelope punch now but have not made an envelope. I have definitely made a ton of crackers/poppers though!
